How Breast Reduction Can Help

Breast reduction is ideal for patients who feel as though their breasts are too large to be proportionate with the rest of their body, or whose large breasts have been causing them physical discomfort. This procedure is also suitable if you find you have one breast which is larger than the other, to reintroduce an overall sense of symmetry to your bust.

Many women are extremely happy with their new breasts following breast reduction, which is cited as one of the most satisfying of all surgical procedures. Women also frequently report an improvement in shoulder, neck, and back pain, and enhanced posture.

Before & After

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction is usually carried out under a general anaesthetic and will involve an overnight stay in one of our partner hospitals. In most cases, the procedure takes about two hours to complete and can be performed with a variety of incision placements.

During your consultation, your surgeon will talk you through all of the relevant details regarding your procedure, including incision placement and what you can expect in terms of scarring once your recovery is complete.

In some instances, the nipple will need to be repositioned in order to maintain a natural look, which will be discussed with you prior to your operation. This can sometimes result in a loss of sensation to the nipple.

After Your Breast Reduction

Your Immediate Recovery

You can expect some moderate discomfort in the days immediately following your surgery, and your practitioner will ensure that you have everything you need to stay comfortable and effectively manage the pain. Your bandages will come off a day or two after surgery, though you’ll continue to wear a surgical bra for several weeks, as the swelling and bruising continue to fade away.

Getting Back to Normal

Stitches are typically removed after two to three weeks, and we will be sure to schedule follow-up appointments with you to ensure that you’re healing properly. You’ll also get detailed aftercare instructions, in addition to having 24-7, on-call access to our highly trained and extremely helpful nursing staff. We’ll be here to answer just about any questions you might have as you recover and look forward to your results.
